A curious mind asks a curious question.

How did they do it?

Her quest to impact millions of people led to 5 years of research. As a humble student seeking to learn from the world’s top philanthropic billionaires, Marina saw a pattern emerge.  They all adopted success strategies to overcome the odds, build a business from zero to hero and channel their wealth into game-changing philanthropic projects.  From the first billionaire female entrepreneur, Sara Blakely, to one of the richest men in the world, Warren Buffet, they all utilised these 8 strategies. 

Marina’s approach is to simplify the complex 

into easy steps so anyone can make an impact. Marina assimilated the research into the 8P’s Method which has now been embraced by entrepreneurs globally. With a successful model, Marina was asked to share the knowledge more widely through books and courses.
